Cull rings for crabs Recreational and commercial crabbers can help conserve Delaware's blue crab population and save themselves some work by using cull rings on their crab pots. The Division of Fish and Wildlife is giving away the rings on a first-come, first-served basis to crabbers. Cull rings are circular rings that are wired to the outside mesh of a crab pot. When wired to the hold- er chamber of the crab pot, these rings allow crabs under a certain size to escape the pot. This natural culling saves the crabber work and conserves smaller crabs, which often fall prey to larger crabs while in the pot. Any commercial crabber inter- ested in trying the cull rings may have up to 75 of each. Recreation- al crabbers, who are allowed two pots, are allowed up to two rings each. Interested crabbers should visit the fisheries office at Delaware's Department of Natur- al Resources and Environmental Control at 89 kings H!ghway, Dover. The blue crab Fishery Manage- ment Plan being developed by the Division of Fish and Wildlife rec- ommends cull rings to be used in all crab pots as a conservation measure. Commercial crabbers, in discussions with the Council of Shellfisheries, have agreed that the use of cull rings should be vol- untary rather than mandatory.
